Jolly Pumpkin Ore de Calabaza, originally uploaded by adambarhan.
Easter 2012 Beer
A: The beer pours a lightly hazed golden orange color with a tall white head.
S: A very nice tart aroma of apples, pears, and peaches. Light grass notes to it and some wet oak. A little bit of earthiness and some lemon zest. Still a little bit of malt and a touch of pepper.
T: Some light spice, particularly white pepper. Hints of bready malts in the background, but the tartness really takes hold. Lemon zest, lactobacillus, grapes, and apples provide a nice complexity and tartness.
M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation.
O: A winner from Jolly Pumpkin. This is a really nice somewhat sour Saison
Serving type: bottle, split a few ways
